Yes, I'm from the xbox side so go easy on me pls I have a brief idea on what to get but I thought I might aswell ask the experts. As the title suggests, I'm looking for a pc build around 800-850. I'll mainly be using it to play World of Warcraft aswell. If someone could, can you pick the parts for me and I'll have a look at it. I live in WA so if you can pick the parts from https://www.ple.com.au/ that would be sick.

I already have a harddrive and dvd drive so you don't have to pick those. Those are the only things that weren't fried from the lightning strike that struck outside my house Thank you all <3

heres a build here i put together while watching some vids. no idea if its good so whats everyones thoughts

Most Intel CPU's come with stock fans, I'm pretty sure AMD CPU's don't (the newer ones anyway). Some people get water cooling or better fans so it doesn't get as hot and they can overclock etc.

You might have a local MSY centre
R9 280 and a 650W psu

but if you want stick with PLE
R9 270x and a 550W psu

R9 280 vs R9 270x
R9 280 vs GTX 760

ditch the Asrock and go for Gigabyte or something similar, you will regret the Asrock in the long run no doubt (identical price if you get the GA-H97M-HD3)

I think the 550w could handle the 280, as long you dont push the limits on the OC

Yep correct, you would need a massive OC to exceed that PSU's limit with any of the parts mentioned in this thread so far.
